“Our newest season of the show takes ‘Bizarre Foods’ to the place I’ve always wanted to see it head towards,” said Zimmern. “Our nation’s historical journeys are the best way to see and taste the American cultural experience, and along the way meet the best people who represent it.”
In the season premiere of “Bizarre Foods,” Zimmern delves deep into the history of cowboy culture. He starts by chatting with a modern vaquero from the Coahuiltecan Nation who teaches him about the centuries old tradition of barbacoa, where an entire cow’s head is slow roasted to tender perfection. After a stop for typical Texan fare at the San Antonio Rodeo, Zimmern meets a modern-day cowgirl who takes him shooting and shares stories over bacon-wrapped quail and prime rib. The Texas road trip concludes with old-fashioned chuckwagon grub eaten out on the range -- where they don’t waste a thing and indulge in “Son of a Bitch Stew” made of calf heart, tongue, stomach, liver and marrow gut.
A four-time James Beard Award-winning TV personality, chef, writer and teacher, Zimmern is regarded as one of the most versatile and knowledgeable personalities in the food world.
